Kobe Brown, burgeoning Clipper legend

It may feel a bit premature, but do you think the Clippers would be open to retiring Kobe Brown’s number?

OK OK, I’ll slow my roll a little bit. Kobe is just doing some exciting things in the Summer League thus far! Have you seen his latest highlight reel moment? If not, now you will!

He’s not afraid to break a guy down in the post too! Or show off his range.

Kobe finished with a pretty little stat line in the Clippers game against the Kings. There were some questions from analysts about the Clippers reaching into the first round to pick him, but he’s proving good on the pick thus far.

Meanwhile, Dru Smith had a bit of an off night as the Heat dropped their game against the Suns 73-70. In 23 minutes, Dru had 7 points and 4 assists while only getting off five shots.

It’s not all former Tiger players getting their time in the spotlight either. Phil Pressey took some time with Celtics media to talk about his transition to the NBA coaching bench.

Flip seems like a rising star. Could he be on his way to a head job at some point?

All three of these guys will probably be in the NFL next year. Quite a trio!

  • Sickos Committee ranking SEC coaches...?

Not sure what the criteria is here, but my only note is that Jimbo and Sam Pittman need to be much lower.

  • Austin Troesser is headed to the Big Apple (assuming, of course, that he signs)

Can’t imagine he’ll be able to pass up this slot. Congrats, Austin!

He wasn’t the only Tiger pitcher headed to the big city, either!

Zach Franklin got picked by the superior Chicago side. Congrats, Zach!
